1865 Bucks County Stone Colonial

Something a little closer to home for a change. Built in the Style of the Bucks County Stone Colonials, this home in Frenchtown New Jersey features wide pumpkin pine floors, secondary Jersey winder staircase, deep set windows and many built-ins. It has a fully enclosed front porch with slate floor that leads to the Family Room w/ beamed ceiling, fire place w/ finely crafted mantel, bookcases, storage drawers, and display cupboards. The Living and Dining Room feature deep set windows, which open to tranquil pond and garden views. The remodeled Country Kitchen is spacious enough to accomodate serious cooks and guests. A 6 Burner Thermadore Cooktop is set in the Center Island. A Breakfast Nook set into a bay window offers magnificent views of century old trees, gazebo and deck. A separate Laundry Room and separate Mud Room are conveniently located on either side of the Kitchen. On the second level are 5 Rooms, allowing for 4 BR's plus office. The attic is walk up and could turn into additional living space. There is also a basement with generous head room for workshop, etc. The 4.68 acre property, including the large farm pond offers that rare opportunity to live "off the land". Just $519k for a really cool piece of property that's not too far from all the charms of New Hope. Off topic : Hey would you guys like me to post seller contacts for these properties? Comment and let me know.

  1. This would be close to my daughter! Now, if I only had a half mil hanging around, not being used...
    seller contacts would be nice, Shelley, for those who have a positive cash flow. (Instead of two kids in college.)
